Gerald Finley bass-baritone

Julius Drake piano

Opening Concert of the 2017/18 Season

Over the past three decades Gerald Finley has risen to the summit of achievement at the world's leading opera houses and concert halls.

The Canadian bass-baritone, a Grammy and three-time Gramophone Award winner, has received universal acclaim for his feeling for words and expressive communication. A regular at Wigmore Hall since the early 1990s, he opens the season with a programme devised to bring out the rich colours and deep humanity of his voice.

He is joined by regular duo partner Julius Drake in a captivating sequence of Schubert songs, and a second half of pieces packed with delightful animal imagery.
